Ok, let's put it this way..... I had a friend visiting from L.A., and after bar hopping in Olde City he asked if we could "go back to that Vampiry place". LOL Now with that said, allow me to explain. He wasn't referring to a goth scene or some underground bloodletting. The ambiance of this place is great.... Dark, candle-lit, classic old style wooden bar, red velvet entrance curtain. Very cool atmosphere. They have an excellent beer menu too, for those who like more than your average light beer.

So, last night was my first time in a Hollywood club - Or any club really (I try to block out the memory of the night I went to a club in Artesia about three years ago). My friend and I got there around 9, which is apparently early for Hollywood standards. Whatever. My friend saw this guy (who took tons of pictures all night) step on a huge roach. And then apparently he and the DJ (I think) sort of looked at my friend, probably trying to figure out if he'd say anything about it. I ordered a mai tai. It was on the small side. I've had mai tais twice that size for the same price. I ordered the chicken saytay. The chicken was lukewarm and the peanut sauce was gross (but I'm never too crazy about peanut sauce). I had two excellent rum and pineapples after that and ordered the Kobe sliders. Now, THOSE were great with the fried crisps they had. If I had ordered these first, I never would have had the chicken. The ambiance was nice, but I don't really have anything to compare it to. I didn't dance, but I didn't think I would (not that night anyway). The music was okay, but I'm one of those special people who would leave the floor when a song I hate comes on (like "Smack That" by Akon, which was played). I will refrain from talking about the crazy lady dressed in hot pink who sang random songs (loudly) that were in no way connected to what the DJ was playing. Oh yeah, and people were smoking inside. I have a real problem with that. Would I go back? Maybe...those Kobe sliders were good... 2 stars
